Making the most of your company membership

Membership workshops for staff

As a Company member or Partner, we can visit your office to hold a membership workshop or lunch & learn. The aim is to advise staff about achieving professional qualifications in energy. The EI offers various grades of membership and professional registration to suit your skills and expertise.

How is it structured?

The session will normally cover:

  • The different grades of membership
  • The specific requirements for our different grades and registrations
  • The application process
  • Useful tips and tactics
  • The benefits of professional registration

This can be followed by general Q&A, one to one membership surgeries, or an exercise focusing on the required competences.

However, the session can also be tailored to meet the needs of your team, for example to focus on a particular title such as Chartered Engineer or Chartered Energy Manager.

To view the different grades available, please see the Membership page of our website.

Let’s get started!

To arrange a workshop or lunch & learn, simply email Terry Winter, Membership Manager at or call +44 (0) 20 7467 7100.
